Is it not some irony that Islam is looking to come on the side of the Adventist...
What is 'rich' about it. He is a secular investigative journalist who has been hot on the trail of the corruption of the NWO/Vatican system for a number of years...he has previously mentioned in his newsletters that the FEMA camps are meant for the Christians. Just in the last 2 days he presents video content for the first time from purely Adventist research and doctrinal message. This guy is out searching for the truth an exposing corruption from a secular perspective and ends up using Adventist content...WHY IS THAT (a question for you to ponder properly)
Having spent much of my life in the rural South, much of it (including the minivan whose photo adorns the top of this post) strikes me as perfectly normal. But Pat Robertson, much less Damon Thompson and Darlene Bishop, just strike me as nuts. Their followings, however, are not insignificant.
I consider Bachmann extreme because, among other reasons, she and her husband Marcus run a clinic that purports to help homosexuals “cure” themselves of their “affliction.” While I’m well aware that large number of people think such a thing is possible, it’s so wildly bizarre that it can’t possibly be considered mainstream.
One of the things that distinguishes Christianity, especially the American variants, from the brand of Islam practiced in much of the Middle East and North Africa, is that it constantly evolves with the social and political culture. Beliefs that were perfectly mainstream half a century ago–much less centuries ago–have been adapted if not outright rejected to comport with the social realities of the times.
Ask yourself Auto, why are Islamic sites now quoting Ellen White and saying that the Seventh-Day Adventist people are the People of the Book that they were foretold about would arise from God during the last days period???
My path Auto of Adventism can link all of Judaism (because we keep the 10 commandments), all of Christendom (because we are the only ones, according to Rome, actually following the Bible fully) and Islam (we are not considered unclean like the rest of the Christians because of our dietary practices - no alcohol, pork ect.) under the Creator of the Universe. The main opposition is Rome, lack of knowledge and people thinking themselves divine and in no need of redemption. Abrahamic religions are not an issue that Adventists can't overcome...it is all those other paths which all Abrahamic religions would consider to be false paths which is where division is really draw.

That, my friend, is elitist talk.
I too have my own way, path, and so on, but I would never set myself up as being the only one one on the right, true, and correct path as you have here. I do in fact hold my own truths dear to heart, but realize, of logical thought, that my truth is not everybody's truth. In other words, I may not have a complete lock on it, and probably do not, as it it not yet time for me to know all things.
You can sit that horse of superiority, my friend, and I sincerely hope it plays well for you. I myself have other plans, in other places, and in other Universes.
